Publication year: 2013

This chapter first describes the clinical symptoms of head movement, and then sketches the options available for treatment of a case that has been so diagnosed. It shows that while the basic diagnostics for head movement are fairly clear, at least within broadly Chomskyan approaches to syntactic theory, there is little consensus on the best technology with which to attack it. An overview of the outstanding issues which complicate the discussion is also presented.
